CALL FOR POLICY BRIEFS/SHORT PAPERS
Open Window: 12 MAY 2016 – 27 MAY 2016
The India Food Security Portal,facilitated by IFPRI, is organizing a one day workshop on Gender and Food Security in India to be held on August 29 in New Delhi. As noted in a recent blog, women’s participation in food production often goes unrecorded but is critical to ensuring access and utilization of food in India. For this reason, a workshop entitled “Gender-Just Food Security” was held in December in Gujarat; for a summary of those discussions, visit our blog. For this follow-up event, we plan to carry those discussions forward and bring together national policy makers, researchers, donors and implementers to present the most recent evidence on gender and food security in India that will contribute to the ongoing local policy debate.
